it saddened me when disneypunk veterans ALLSTAR WEEKEND announced their indefinite hiatus earlier this year. meanwhile, FTSK have been trying to regain the relevance they once had in 2008 amongst the teen-girl demographic by marketing their tour in a clever way to make it seem like they’re touring with one direction. metro station im not even sure if they were a band anymore til i looked on their wikipedia page and the only member listed in it now is the chubby singer/guitarist.
POINT IS… the disneypunk genre has come to a turning point. a new band must come out of the woodwork and supply the demand for young bitchez who crave something a little bit more underground than one direction and justin bieber, but who arent hardcore enough to listen to risecore.
after narrowing my choices down to a few bands (including the after party & before you exit) ive concluded that HOLLYWOOD ENDING will be the next big disneypunk band.
their standard friendzone song. features amazing lyrics like “so tell me why do you have that boyfriend… maybe i should learn to make you cry”
their hit single off their EP “always 18″ (and also my fav song by them) features them dressed up as superheroes fighting sketchy looking old dudes who look like they play in hardcore bands. an invisible rapper even comes in and lays down a sick verse.
this song is about how the singer has a crush on an “alternative” girl from his school and how shes so edgy and different
bands like this are usually mostly known for their justin bieber covers, and hollywood ending’s rendition of “beauty and a beat” is one of the best takes on a biebz song i think ive ever heard. i like how at 1:14 the ginger guitarist briefly displays his sick shredding skills.
just wait a few more months… u will see how right i am about hollywood ending being the next big disneypunk band… u will see
